AmatukaThis doesn't have to be 〜て. It should probably be shown under ように言う. 
dc^ changed 
dcactually hmm. it is more often 伝えて as in leaving telephone messages, so could be other verbs too? though they would probably be a limited set around tell/ask/instruct.. but the verb itself is not part of the grammar construct..  
AmatukaThey're all centred around 'ように' 
AmatukaFormed from 'verb + you ni Vte'

V = verb
dcyouniiu is the same.
this ends in -te (continuous form) because it is usually finished with -kudasai.

suru you ni itte kudasai - tell to do (please)
suru you ni iu - tell to do
